The 2011 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is sweet, floral and wonderfully expressive, all Brovia signatures. Silky tannins provide the backdrop as this sensual, polished Barolo shows off its class. Perfumed notes are woven throughout, but it is the wine's exceptional textural finesse that stands out most. Hints of hard candy, mint, cinnamon and succulent red cherries add the final shades of dimension. In 2011, the Rocche stands out for its total sense of class.

A bright and fruity red with dried strawberry, hazelnut and shaved chocolate character. Full and silky textured. Beautiful finish. Better in 2018.

The 2011 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione shows beautiful integration and clarity of aromas. Wild berry and forest floor is followed by spice, leather and a strong mineral characteristic with crushed oyster shell and marine layers at the back. The wine undergoes fermentation in cement vats and is later transferred to large oak casks for aging. The vintage heat has contributed to a soft and more approachable personality overall. But the wine is built to last nonetheless.

Firmly structured, this opens with scents of dark cherry marinated in spirits, baking spices, forest floor and a balsamic accent. The focused palate offers red berry, dried black cherry, clove, licorice and dried herbs alongside bracing but refined tannins and nervous acidity. Give this time to unwind and blossom. Drink 2018–2026.
